A new pilot program is instilling science research skills in the minds of high school students in rural areas, and Sahuarita High School is participating.

The program through SARSEF (Southern Arizona, Research, Science and Engineering Foundation) pairs a teacher with a research fellow who will come to class throughout the year to help with classroom-level research projects.

The shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two adults dead in May marked the 27th school shooting with injuries or deaths this year in the U.S. Last Friday, with the new school year approaching, Sahuarita police conducted active shooter training at Walden Grove High School to prepare for similar emergencies.

According to Amber Woods, director of community outreach for Sahuarita Unified School District, the district endorses the active shooter protocol of Run, Hide, Fight.

Here is an FBI training video depicting the run, hide, and fight tactics and the basics of providing first-aid to others during an active shooter event.

What are your thoughts on active shooter training? Do you think active shooter training should be mandatory in schools and workplaces, or are there better ways to prepare for and prevent mass shootings?
